2017 Frediani Distant Past – Calistoga, Napa Valley
The 2017 Distant Past blends two of our most popular varietals, 86% Petite Sirah and 14% Zinfandel, into a wine that we get asked for time and time again. "Give me something big, bold, and opulent," we hear from both loyal fans and first-time visitors. Well, ask and you shall receive.
Distant Past has everything you're looking for — grippy tannins, bold spices, smooth elegance, and a long, lingering finish. On the nose, there are hints of dusty Calistoga backroads and rustic baskets full of fig jam and black cherries. The silky and full mouthfeel reveals concentrated flavors of black currant, white pepper, cola, and dark chocolate. This wine's richness is the ideal pairing for a cozy night by the fire pit with roasted beef, pork, or venison. Decant 1-2 hours prior to serving for optimal flavor and experience.
